About the tour

Been dreaming of a trip to Venice? The floating city promises a lot more than its grand canals and gondola rides! Andrea’s virtual tour of Venice is packed with adventure, mystery, and romance. Boxing ring on a bridge? Check. A set for Indiana Jones' Last Crusade? Check. And a square where they make gondolas? Check. Get ready to be whisked away in a Venetian gondola ride and discover some of the best views of Venice - be it the Piazza San Marco, popularly called the St. Mark’s Square, or the Bridge of Sighs passing over the Rio di Palazzo. But that's not all. On this guided tour, you’ll also discover some of Venice’s small islands, and experience one of the most postcard-perfect places on Earth. If you’re lucky, you may end up in a water taxi along the popular Canal Grande and spot the gothic-style Doge’s Palace and St. Mark’s Basilica. Couldn’t get any better? The south side of Venice is filled with fun and curious stories that Andrea will entertain you with when you’re visiting Venice with him on this virtual tour!


Meet Andrea

Andrea

Besides been a licensed tour guide and a freelance journalist, I’m a musician, playing with the most popular reggae singer in my country (who by the way doesn’t sing in Italian, or in English, but in Venetian dialect, never heard of Venetian reggae?) . A 40 years experience on the stage helps me a lot during the tours, because the tour for me it’s like a show, with its climax and anticlimax. Above all anyway, I'm a real Venetian, born and raised in the city. I like therefore to share with passion and my knowledge of this unique city, mixing in my strolling along the city information, fun facts, personal experiences that I think help you to enjoy a unique tour. I’m one of the “eldest” guide on this platform, because when it started there were just three destinations, including mine. I liked a lot the idea of running virtual tours when everything was blocked, but when John and Liam involved me in June 2020, I couldn’t imagine how big this community could have grown, and I’m really proud to be part of it since the beginning.

Andrea gave us a really interesting and beautiful tour. He is pleasant to listen to, and is very well informed. I learnt many new details about Venice, and that will make a future visit even better :)
